Started from Angeles Oaks up the San Bernardino Peak Trail (1W07). Stopped at Washington Monument to see the remnants of the survey tower built in 1852. Continued on up to the summit of San Bernardino Peak (10649 ft). From here descended down the ridgeline to the saddle and then up to the summit of San Bernardino East Peak (10691 ft). Returned the same way, explored Limber Pine Bench Trail camp and about half way back down we went cross country up to the summit of Gerhardt Peak (8574 ft) which hadn't seen a visitor in over a year! Amazing cooler weather for July and fantastic views on one of the most beautiful hikes in Southern California.

Water available to filter was flowing from the Limber Spring on the
switchback just past the camp at coordinates: N34.12767 W116.92923
